FYI, Steve McNair podcast is a SKIP - what a bust...  Started out strong (altho the host is awful) and fizzled hard

Seems pretty cut and dry that the DA and his lackey are corrupt and railroading Curtis.  Bigmarc its about a single 20 year old case in mississipi.  4 peeps murdered at a furniture store.  The DA charged someone with it and convicted him however it went to the MS. supreme court who overturned the result based on the DA's shoddy work.  The DA retried him 5 more times and each time the MS SC overturned.  All the while this guy has been in prison.

The DA is certainly corrupt and to say that Curtus hasn't been treated fairly is an understatement.  I don't want to say much else as not to spoil it for others.

Started listening to Mo Rocca's new podcast "Mobituaries."  It has a similar feel to his CBS Sunday Morning spots, shining a light on some forgotten historical or cultural figure.  First episode was about JFK impersonator Vaughn Meader, whose career died with JFK.   Second one was about strange sitcom deaths/disappearances, like Chuck Cunningham from Happy Days and Valerie Hogan.  Third one was on forgotten firsts in history like Elizabeth Jennings (who desegregated the NYC trolleys, with her attorney, Chet Arthur) and Moses Fleetwood Walker (first and last African-American baseball player until Jackie Robinson).

Not a huge fan of the Mike Ritland podcasts but I've listened to a few of them and he does occasionally knock it out of the park. This is one of those podcast. He has a relationship with Laura Logan so she agreed to do his pod and it's stellar. She's a warrior, good 3 hour listen. His podcast is Mike Drop.

The Mike Drop podcast is a not so politically correct discussion of wide ranging topics that span from govt/politics and war to health and fitness, from guns and survival skills to food and nutrition with music, BBQ and a touch of everything else in between. This is THE platform that is completely raw, totally unfiltered and in your face, while still intellectually sound with good intuitive dialogue between A-holes that know what they’re talking about.

I pimped this podcast a while ago after listening to his Fear & Loathing in the New Jerusalem series (fantastic btw). Mr. Cooper posted the first in a new series last week, just got to it yesterday and wow, phenomenal opening! Darryl Cooper is second only to Dan Carlin in my book when it comes to story-type podcast. Give it a listen :thumbup::thumbup:

This is the first episode of a series exploring Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple. This episode is only a prologue, a few stories and ideas to serve as a backdrop for everything to come. The next episode will be along in the next few weeks, and every few weeks after that until we figure out why over 900 people committed suicide in a South American jungle in 1978.

Here is the apple description - 

 

Journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker, Moneyball) takes a searing look at what’s happened to fairness—in financial markets, newsrooms, basketball games, courts of law, and much more. And he asks what’s happening to a world where everyone loves to hate the referee.

--

I listened to the first episode. It was about NBA referees and how - as they have gotten a lot better, their relationship with NBA players - especially star players - has gotten worse.

Still loving the Dollop, but I had to skip the Trump double-episode, and the Eric Prince/Blackwater one was really hard to get through.  It's much easier to listen to those when you can think, "Oh, those primitive people in the 1800s didn't know any better."  Present-day idiocy is pretty hard to stomach.

I'm slowly catching up to them - about 14 months behind at this point.

Oh, Omnibus is good.  It's like The Dollop with much smarter, but slightly less funny guys.

Thanks - I will check this one out.   

I seem to hit a wall with certain podcasts, especially when they start getting popular enough to have a lot of live episodes.  Not sure why that bothers me so much, but it's a reason I have stopped listening to The Dollop a bit, and don't like WDTGM/Doug Loves Movies and others like that.

I probably pimped this podcast already (MikeDrop with Mike Ritland) but listening to his most recent one and it's solid. http://mikedrop.libsyn.com/034-hamody-jasim

He interviews Hamody Jasim for about 4 hours. Hamody is better known as the Terrorist Whisperer, really good insight into living in Iraq during Gulf War I, after, Operation Iraqi Freedom and now here in the states.

Hamody Jasim has been one of America’s greatest weapons in fighting the terror war against AL Qaeda and ISIS. He is an Iraqi born native who grew up under the devastating oppression of Saddam’s Regime. Hamody went from being a young man, beaten every day, in Saddam’s prison, to being one of the most lethal spies in Iraq – a threat to all the terrorists in the Iraqi war. He saved many Americans’ lives by eliminating high-level Al-Qaeda and Islamic State operatives, and terrorist organizations. In 2003, once the American troops had arrived, Hamody’s impossible dream to enlist in the new Iraqi Army became a reality. He seized the opportunity to help create a new Iraq and go after the terrorists who long plagued Iraq and the rest of the world. In 2005, Hamody was recruited by U.S. Intelligence and became one of the most valuable intelligence assets inside the Iraqi MOD. To date, Hamody still keeps in contact with many of his PSD team members and gets the most accurate information from the battlefield in Iraq and is inspired to share his story with others in hopes of inciting a reason to Conduct successful operations with innovation and intelligence.

Nearly all of the podcasts under the Wondery label are fantastic.  Exceptionally well written and produced, and almost always riveting.

From history to business to sports to true crime you really can’t go wrong with the a Wondery series.  I think I like Business Wars the best because you get a history lesson along with a business lesson.

It's only 9 weeks in and it explains the space race. Pretty good stuff. I wish I knew how to look for more podcasts that focus on one event or so.

Just finished this one, very good. Mike Ritland & John Nore. :thumbup:

There are many dark elements of our society that we rarely get to see light being shone upon. I sit down with Lt. John Nores of the California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife highlighting the dangerous work he & his teammates have done combatting the environmentally devastating marijuana grow sites in CA. Lots of riveting operational stories in this one. https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-War-Operations-Reclaiming-Wildlands/

Finished this one a while ago but got the book after and just wrapped it up. I'd recommend reading the book first then listening to the podcast if you plan on reading the book but if not the 5 hour podcast is fantastic. Jocko Willink & Sean Parnell Important Lessons of Outlaw Platoon’s Long and Horrific Road. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LC0S7W/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

I am not a fan of Opie on his own. I LOVED the O&A show but separately I don't think they are very good. I never understood the love for Carl I just didnt get it. May Carl RIP he was way to young to go but I think his life style led to his demise. Still sad though he was enjoying himself.

Trying out the new podcasts from the Weinstein brothers.

The Portal with Eric Weinstein has some interesting guests, but they play out as you would expect any conversation with Eric Weinstein to go. Keep your dictionary handy, brace yourself for the many claims that some obscure mathematical theory is the most important thing in the universe, and pray that his friends finally get it through to him that he's terrible at explaining things. Still interesting, though.

DarkHorse Podcast with Bret Weinstein is likewise just as you would expect from Bret: fascinating, coherent, and insightful. I like this one better of the two for sure, although they're both still in their infancy.

SMOO!!!!

I caught Eric on Rogan and it was really good. Started listening to the Portal and per above, I need to rewind a lot to pick up what he's putting down. A very interesting man with some good guests discussing topics I would never look into where it not for the podcast. didn't realize he had a brother, with have to give DarkHorse a shot :thumbup:

If you liked Eric on Rogan, you should try Bret as well.

JRE #970: Bret Weinstein. Talking about the fiasco at Evergreen which thrust him into the limelight.

JRE #1006: Jordan Peterson & Bret Weinstein. Fascinating conversation about all things intellectual.

JRE #1055: Bret Weinstein. Can't remember what this one was about, but I'm sure it was great.

JRE #1081: Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying. Bret and his wife taking a deep dive into evolutionary biology. Very good.

I guess this belongs here.  Ed Snowden on Joe Rogan.   Should be a good listen

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efs3QRr8LWw

Every time I listen to Snowden or read something from him or watch a documentary about him I become further convinced that I would absolutely take the blue pill and crawl back into my battery cradle. Fantastic listen and, as always, scary what we have become and allowed to happen.

Just ran across this eight part podcast, fascinating stuff.

Dr Ruja Ignatova persuaded millions to join her financial revolution. Then she disappeared. Why? Jamie Bartlett presents a story of greed, deceit and herd madness. She was the founder of OneCoin, a crypto currency that never was but bilked investors to the tune of $15.5 billion euros

After a few episodes, "Cautionary Tales" is pretty good. Looks at some debacles, blunders, heists, and other interesting stories from history and what we can learn from them about design, problem-solving, engineering, and human nature.

Anyone else listen to Michael Connelly's Murder Book?

He's a former crime reporter turned novelist (The Bosch series, The Lincoln Lawyer, Blood Work among dozens of others) taking an in-depth look at a murder case in Los Angeles that happened in the late 1980s, remained unsolved, then took a bunch of really crazy twists and turns in the cold case files. The podcast was released alongside the final steps of the eventual court case and follows the developments as they happened.

 

Season 1 is over and there is resolution, if you don't want to be left hanging, its a good binge now.
